New Patient Story

  • Location: Stanwood,
Placeholder Image Placeholder Image
My spouse had suffered a heart attack. He went from able bodied to disabled overnight. He became a new person. He was grieving. He turned his anger on me. I felt overwhelmed after becoming the family's soul source of income. I felt worthless. He called me "stupid" a lot. I lost hope and attempted suicide on three separate occasions. I was able to discuss these feelings with a therapist and resolve them. Since my husband has now died I feel lonely and uncertain of my personal future. But instead of feeling overwhelmed I am hopeful of what the future will bring. I want to continue living not only for myself but to honor my spouse.
